Discogs is your home for discovering music. It’s an extensive musician and release Database connected to your personal Collection.

Sign in or register and start exploring the many features of Discogs.
Discogs is the largest user-built music Database in the world, free and open forever. Imagine a site with the discographies of all artists and all labels, branching down through release versions of albums, all cross-referenced. That, in essence, is the Discogs Database. Explore artist discographies, release credits, tracks and more in the Database.
Use a powerful search and filtering system to explore more than 10 million releases by format, decade, country of release, genre or style, and many other parameters. Get started by diving in to the Explore page.
What’s In Your Collection?
Keep notes of what records you have. Annotate their condition, view value estimates, organize releases by using folders and search through your items using the free Collection feature.
Keep Track of What You Want
Don’t let an item you’re interested in get away. Add an item from the Database to your Wantlist to monitor prices. Use account settings to set email updates for when items in your Wantlist become available.
Buy Music On The Discogs Marketplace
The Marketplace allows you to buy and sell physical copies of music listed in the Database. Each Marketplace item is joined to the Database so you can identify which recording is for sale. Buy with confidence knowing sales history with condition notes and a rating system for both Sellers and Buyers. Get deal notifications through your dashboard and email.
Explore music reviews, industry news, site announcements, and data reports from the team behind Discogs. Learn with immersive dives, discover musicians’ favorite records and tag along with record shop guides.
Meet The Sellers Of Discogs
Discogs doesn’t have a warehouse full of rare records. All items are from individual Sellers. The Sellers of Discogs are about as diverse a group as you can imagine. They range from individuals selling a few records to brick-and-mortar stores with thousands of available items. Anyone can sell music on Discogs.
“It is really incredible how big the record community still is and that there are so many collectors. I am so grateful that at my age I can really take off again with what I love.” – Soundman_2016
